Obama Presidency…

Obama presidencyThe desperation of the Obama presidency to salvage some sort of modestly respectable legacy has resulted in a most regrettable decision…to make a deal with Iran.  President Rouhani may have perfectly legitimate intentions (though I much doubt that), but he does not rule Iran.  He is a titular head, akin to John Kerry himself, a secretary.  The Supreme Ruler of Iran, Khamanei, is truly in control and must be having a good chuckle over the supreme naivete of John Kerry and Barack Obama.

In exchange for significant loosening of sanctions, sanctions that have taken a decade to cobble together among our allies and finally have an effect, Rouhani has agreed to allow inspections of several of the more ‘threatening’ nuclear sites in the country and will decommission the facility with the greatest capacity to enrich uranium to weapons grade.  According to this treacherous agreement, Iran can even further enrich at other facilities.

Did we not learn our lesson with Saddam?  These folks have a different sense of the word trust.  Just as Saddam deftly moved equipment from one storage facility to another, one step ahead of the inspectors, so will the Iranians, in a cat and mouse game.  Furthermore, why does Kerry so trust our esteemed intelligence department that so woefully bungled the imaginary weapons (WMD) of mass destructions in Iraq?  How does anyone know where Iran is truly hiding its ability to manufacture the most serious WMD possible?

This deal has not been fashioned to make the region more secure, it has been hastily cobbled together in hopes of giving Barack one positive element to his bleak legacy.  In all likelihood, it will add to one VERY sad presidency.

About Dr. Michael J. O'Connell, New Hampshire
Dr. Michael J. O'Connell of Barrington, New Hampshire, has forged a distinguished career spanning over three decades, as entrepreneur, physician, businessman, philanthropist and healthcare consultant. As former owner, administrator and CEO of a 225+ employee multi-specialty medical practice, Dr. O'Connell has dedicated his entire professional life to helping patients with family medicine and especially those experiencing chronic pain and all aspects of addiction. Since selling his family of healthcare businesses, he has never once contemplated retirement despite his rich and fulfilling journey, but instead has turned his focus to consulting in an industry starved for courage and creativity. Having weathered many political, technological and legal challenges, there is hardly a storm he has not confronted, a tempest he has not quelled, an urgent need he has not met. While the talking heads and self-proclaimed experts in the field have assumed the conventions and standards of the times, Dr. O'Connell does not believe in merely reflecting the herd mentality, but rather in leading the charge. Eschewing political correctness, Dr. O'Connell says and does what needs saying and doing, and not what the mindless masses expect. In addition to the continual education afforded by his variegated life experiences, Dr O'Connell earned his BS in Biochemistry at the University of NH in 1975, his Medical Degree from Dartmouth College in 1981, interned at Walter Reed Medical Center in 1982, Residency/Fellowship at UCSF in1986, and finished his Masters in Healthcare Administration at UNH in 1995. Dr. O’Connell enjoys many outdoor activities, including rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking, and golf. Through the decades Dr. O'Connell has supported many non-profit charities to include the St. Charles Home in Rochester NH, the Tri City VNA and Hospice, Hyder House, and Cocheco Valley Humane Society. To the latter organization alone Dr. O'Connell has donated over $180,000 and pledged another $250,000 in the “Bring-Us-Home” campaign for a new building. His “Matching Donations Christmas drive” has generated over $175,000 in charitable giving from the community. In addition Dr. O'Connell has participated in many dozens of other volunteer and donation efforts locally as well as in Africa and the Dominican Republic.
